being worth than the u.s. dollar. 7:45. well, an investigation by san francisco city attorneys into how some city employees used city computers should wrap up soon. the p.u.c. is working with the district attorney to investigate that several work employees used the computers to download pornography and gamble online. the inappropriate use of looking at explicitly sexual materials and gambling online can lead to employees being fired. the america's cup race could cost taxpayers millions of dollars. pam cook is in the studio right now. what's the reason for the big deal. >> there are a few reasons. $20billion. that amount is what could fall on san francisco to pay. now, with less than three months to go, the money raised to host the world-class event
7:49am
is far below what's needed. the croppicle reports the shrinking size of the event has helped reduce cost but it's also reduced corporate interest in sponsorship. this started with 12 teams. it has been whittled down to three. so fewer people and less money is now projected to come into the local economy. the park and rec told the paper they raised $9 million from local donors and $5 million from the racers in the form of a loan that may not have to be repaid. that's about $14 but the race's estimated cost including police, transportation, is about twice of that. coming up in the next hour, why the well-known host may be one reason the money is not flowing into the event. dave? >> all right, pam. 7:47. rick perry starts his three-day tour of california today. he's trying to lure businesses to texas. perry will go to san francisco, the silicon valley, los angeles

7:51am
newtown, connecticut shootings, immigration reform issues and the budget cuts coming up on march -- march 1,the focus -- the -- march 1st. the focus the white house is saying the argument will be on economic issues. we'll see what happens tomorrow night. >> do you expect he will set a more conciliatory tone with republicans or will he still have that aggression tone at the inauguration address? >> reporter: we've seen some reports of it -- it will be more aggressive. i guess there's two ways to look at it. right now, the republicans are basically saying we don't want to do x, y, and z, when it comes to the budget items and the reform and the issues on gun and gun control. so you could look at it two ways. the president probably has to sort of tread a fine line in a tense, tori, while urging action in the congress. he doesn't want to come april cross so negatively that it hurts overall -- across so negativity that it hurts
7:52am
overall. we'll see what sort of mix of ingredients they come up with tomorrow night. but judging, i have to say, tori, from the number of people, including in, who will be bringing a guess, to the state of the union address victims of relatives of people who have observed gun violence, it looks like democrats will be on the move on that issue and i would assume others as well. >> even just today we had the shooting at courthouse in delaware that -- where a man is accused of shooting his wife. so it's still gun control issues, still very much in the forefront. >> reporter: i expect the president to talk about that. in his inaugural address, he made a passing revs to gun violence. didn't really talk about it. one would think with the hearing tomorrow on the issue, that democrats will be fully ready to bring that up and i would fully expect the president to do the same tomorrow night. >> all right.

ktvu's tara moriarty joining us live from san francisco with more whoop was behind this morning a historic announcement. tara? >> reporter: well, some say it's bad timing with easter coming up so close. this is really the spiritual time for catholics, a very busy time of the year. so a lot of people say that he should have waited. others here at st. mary's cathedral here near the archdiocese headquarters say that, you know, they feel bad for him. if he needed to step, he needed to. there are been reports of his ailing health and right around the time of his election in 2005, pope benedict hoped to retire and spend more time writing books. he's a highly regarded scholar in theology. that was shot down basically by pope john paul ii. now, pope benedict told vatican cardinals that he didn't have the strength to go on. people we spoke to this morning said all of the other popes except one have died in office.
8:02am
why couldn't he? but others were sympathetic. >> i was listening to the catholic radio station and they were saying he wanted to resign even before. right now, he feels this is it. so god bless him. >> reporter: the 85-year-old ally last day of pope will be february 28th. the last time the pope resigned was nearly 600 years ago, when pope gregory xii stepped down in an effort to end the civil war within the church. pope benedict xvi was born in 1927 as joseph ratzinger. he served in the army but deserted and was eventually captured by americans and then released. his decision sets the stage for a new pope to be elected before the end of march. the san francisco archdiocese just opened about a minute ago. we are hoping to speak to someone from there and get

8:05am
vandalism is leading to more traffic tieups around the bay area. caltrans says a total of 59 lights have been vandalized in the bay area over just the past here and crews have only been able to fix 18 of them so far. the cost is about $35,000 to repair one of the meters. it takes several months to do all of that replacement work. thieves are ripping out copper wire from stop signs and freeway signs and that's contributing to traffic delays. in the meantime, caltrans and other agencies, they are trying to fight back and switching over to aluminum fire. there's also a new state law here in california that takes effect this year that will increase the penalties for copper thieves and for those metal recyclers. in many cases, they could face three years behind bars. again, this is a -- a trend that's developing. one that drivers out there don't want to hear about if it's gonna lead to longer commutes.
